It’s New Year’s Eve 1999, and the Digger is in town. He has already killed dozens in a subway shooting that leaves the city paralyzed in fear and the FBI racing against the clock. A note delivered to the Mayor’s office demanding $20 million, with three more attacks at four-hour intervals if the drop-off doesn’t occur. When the drop doesn’t go as planned and a hit-and-run results in the death of the Digger’s accomplice, the FBI realizes that the Digger will keep right on killing.

In desperation, they contact Parker Kinkade, a retired FBI forensic document examiner, the best in the country. Parker is torn, however, as he is in the middle of a custody battle and chasing a cold-hearted killer doesn’t exactly make for a stable home environment - not to mention a historical case that has left his son traumatized. However, when he hears of innocent children killed and the possibility of many others, he cannot refuse.

In a race against time, and what they eventually find to be wits, they continue to come close but have it all blow up at the last minute. As the case draws to a close and Parker is safely at home, something begins to nag at him. Like a puzzle, he feels like he is missing one of the pieces, and suddenly chaos reigns again; this time it hits a little too close to home.

The Devil's Teardrop is full of mystery, suspense, and intrigue, one of those rare finds that captures your attention within minutes and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Jay Patterson does an excellent reading with unique voice inflection for each character, a perfect feature for a novel that requires the listener to keep pace with the story. A highly recommended listen or read!
